    First off, as I read the dust jacket, I knew I had read this book, or parts of it, before But where, and when Or perhaps I had seen a movie version There is no such record of a film ever having been made from the book In any case, all this wondering is beside the point, for it seems I will never be able to remember The story strikes me as very enchanting, the prose lilting and evocative That the author knows her romantics both in literature and art is clear How she weaves the reader int First off, as I read the dust jacket, I knew I had read this book, or parts of it, before But where, and when Or perhaps I had seen a movie version There is no such record of a film ever having been made from the book In any case, all this wondering is beside the point, for it seems I will never be able to remember The story strikes me as very enchanting, the prose lilting and evocative That the author knows her romantics both in literature and art is clear How she weaves the reader into the lives of both her protagonists neither both of them particularly sympathetic characters, really, if you think long and hard about it makes one think she herself may have, at some point, been exposed to teaching officious yet malleable schoolboys as a profession.Miss Hill s plot does not appeal to me as much as the manner she lets this unfold One keeps expecting tragic repercussions from the way things carry on, but the end promises something so much different A most poignant conclusion awaits the reader, one which of course I cannot reveal here Suffice to say that this has been the best story I have read so far this year My only regret is to have read it as if I were on a deadline, I couldn t help myself it took less than twenty four hours As a footnote, let me add that as soon as I started on the first few pages, I had already assigned Miss Vale the face and countenance of the prim Deborah Kerr Thanks mostly in part to her role as the schoolmaster s wife in Tea and Sympathy Agnes Vale would have been a perfectly suitable character for Deborah Kerr.Another great find from my Capitol Bookstore windfall.Reread on March 31, finished by April 1, 2018 Again, I felt my rereading was much too quick But the visuals evoked by the novel s period, the setting, the atmosphere even the music, are much too captivating, one still cannot just put it down My review is the same as it was years ago None of the characters are particularly sympathetic Apart from Elephant Walk, this book epitomizes my concept of how a novel should unfold

    To be fair, I d rather give this 3.5 stars than 3, but half stars aren t an option.The writing is fine for the time it came out, as is the editing, and all is well developed I simply didn t care for the story, the subject matter, or the characters As such, I cannot bring myself to offer up four stars, which might be construed as liking this book, or worse, recommending it.Agnes and Goff are the main characters the third person point of view most often centers upon Only one makes it to the end To be fair, I d rather give this 3.5 stars than 3, but half stars aren t an option.The writing is fine for the time it came out, as is the editing, and all is well developed I simply didn t care for the story, the subject matter, or the characters As such, I cannot bring myself to offer up four stars, which might be construed as liking this book, or worse, recommending it.Agnes and Goff are the main characters the third person point of view most often centers upon Only one makes it to the end of the book And only one is depicted as a human rather than an object Both are horribly guilty of crimes against morality neither is ever charged, and only one of them even momentarily considers the legal ramifications And that rendered her vulnerable All at once she was within his power That s a quote from the moment Goff considers himself in love with Agnes He later tells her of this love, though he s still a child at the time She tells him she s flattered He angers and uses intimidation and force to make her say she loves him back and then to kiss him Goff s antisocial personality disorder is clear even at the beginning of puberty.Goff s best friend is Andrew At age twelve, Andrew starts raping his own sister Goff admires him for it, especially since Andrew is the first one among his classmates to have had sex They consider the blood and tears to be natural Are you getting a sense of why I don t care for this book Eventually, Goff begs Agnes to have sex She didn t put up a very strong resistance What was the use of that He might have forced her anyway Nothing says love like committing a violent crime, right And, bonus, getting the person you love to commit a crime, because the sex was statutory rape.Just when Agnes seems to be redeemable, everything goes out the window She wondered whether Goff would come She had to admit that she wanted him to find her desirable still, shallow as that was The character is worried about being shallow when she ought to be seeking therapy for hoping a child is sexually attracted to her I guess at least it makes Goff slightly less of a monster except it doesn t, because soon after that he impregnates a girl his own age, then gets the girl to have an abortion by sending Andrew over there, and then the girl tries to kill herself Whoops, that might be a spoiler Or, if you find this sort of thing offensive, I ve just saved you, so youarewelcome Perhaps Agnes is meant to be redeemed by her lack of self confidence She s always telling Goff and later, Justin that she s just what he wants for now, that he ll eventually be interested in girls his own age instead That it s all just an infatuation and that she s keeping him from someonesuitable She even asks herself if the reason behind her choices is that she believes it won t last But there may have been something to it The moment she s physically unable to have sex healing from a medical issue , he thinks that she s no good and considers having sex with a friend, or even a prostitute.I would not consider this book to be a romance or erotica The tragedy is a genre of traditional drama that is generally characterized by serious themes and the eventual downfall of the protagonist of the drama Tragedy has a noble character who falls from grace Evokes emotions of pity and fear from its audience By those definitions, tragedy is the genre I would use to classify this novel.I read this book because I was looking for something published in 1979, and this was the first I came across

    Easy to read Female protagonist becomesinteresting as story unfolds she begins as an impossibly good natured romantic and gradually gains shades of grey as a troubled woman seeking refuge Spoonfuls of sexual tension.

    As much as I hate some parts of the story between Agnes Vale and Goff, I m pretty sure though unexpectedly I totally got hurt by this one.
